About National Diabetes Awareness Month

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, a time when individuals, communities, and healthcare professionals come together to raise awareness about this chronic condition. With millions of people affected by diabetes worldwide, it is crucial to educate ourselves and others about its causes, prevention, and management. During this month, Muir Diablo Occupational Medicine is committed to empowering our patients with the knowledge and resources they need to lead a fulfilling and healthy life with diabetes.

Understanding Diabetes

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that affects the way the body processes blood sugar (glucose). There are three main types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the body does not produce enough insulin, while type 2 diabetes results from the body's ineffective use of insulin. Gestational diabetes develops during pregnancy and can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes later in life.
